Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Depart from an embarking point near Embankment, central London, and greet your knowledgeable guide on the pier. Listen to a brief orientation talk and don your life jacket before climbing aboard your impressive RIB speedboat, capable of reaching 50 knots per hour.

Select between two adrenaline-fueled tours depending on which sights you’re most interested in seeing; experience a 50-minute Canary Wharf tour for unrivaled views of the Tower of London, HMS Belfast, the Houses of Parliament and the Execution Dock. 

Alternatively, opt for the 80-minute Thames Barrier Experience to enjoy sweeping vistas of Greenwich and the colossal Thames Barrier. Cruise at high speed around the O2 Arena, the filming location of James Bond film The World is Not Enough, while listening to classic hits on the state-of-the-art speaker system.

Throughout your adventurous excursion, you'll hear commentary and music on a modern sound system and feel the adrenaline rush of high velocity speeds. After your rip-roaring ride on the Thames River, you'll return to your original departure point and bid your guide farewell.

Great experience; fun and educational! Professional and attentive staff provided excellent customer service from the moment we arrived at the pier to the moment we left. Johnny and Brendon, our driver and guide, made the experience a memorable one. Thank you. Shush

No minimum seats guarnty

I had to cancel the booking on Friday morning, a day before the booking due to the unavailability of a boat at 10:30am because there's no minimum seats guaranty. I received a call a day before to say that we wont be able to take our ride on Saturday morning. They offered an alternative time in the afternoon which was not suitable for us. I look forward to receiving my money back in full.

A bit pricy but probably worth it on second thought. Our kids 4-11 years absolutely loved it especially when speed went up + loud music. I recommend it highly.

We had a great time. The queuing up process was handled very well with security questions and safety demo. Only 12 people on the boat, the guide was very entertaining and very professional pilot who made us have lots of thrills... would do it again tomorrow x fabulous x
